Hi Doug!

Long time no see (read).

I think God is after those who know their need of Him.

This is why the law is so important, not as a ladder to be climbed, but as a sword to cut us off at the knees.

Then, the gospel can go to work on us.

Thanks, my friend!

PS- I've been posting some good sermons and classes. The latest has to do with your topic here.

1. Because the church needs to continue growing in spite of suffering.

2. Senior people. Senior in maturity in the church.

3. IMHO, this is in reference to the church. Nothing especially special.

4. Not feel forced to. Because then the shepherding work is done from the heart.

5. Suffering similarly with the rest of church ... not acting as someone superior.

6. Something positive to take encouragement in and look forward to.

7 ... 9 see 5. I think they are related.

These are just my off-the-cuff point of view. May God bless your study.
